Minnesota Medication Repository Program
Medication repositories can reduce medication waste while additionally helping patients receive medications they otherwise couldn’t afford. This presentation will review what medication repositories are, and what the journey to implementing one for the state of Minnesota has been.
Founder & CEO MMRP
Rowan Mahon is the founder of the Minnesota Medication Repository Program (MMRP). She is also a recent Master's of Public Health, and Master's of Health Informatics graduate from the University of Minnesota (2019) and a current fourth year pharmacy student who is set to graduate in May 2020. As a student, she led the charge to change state laws to allow for a medication repository program to exist within Minnesota. It took two legislative sessions but language passed in the 2019 session and since then she has created the MMRP and is in the process of implementation.
The cost is $25 for non-members. MPhA pharmacist members, pharmacy technician members and student members may attend at no cost.
